PHILADELPHIA - Materials scientists at Drexel University are claiming a breakthrough in wearable textile technology after designing a new flexible supercapacitor power patch.

The researchers used MXene, a conductive nanomaterial discovered at Drexel in 2011, to create a textile-based supercapacitor that can charge in minutes and power a microcontroller temperature sensor, and communicate data, for almost two hours.

In a study published in the Royal Society of Chemistry's Journal of Material's Chemistry A, scientists from Drexel's College of Engineering told how they developed the patch in partnership with a team at Accenture Labs in California.
